Completely.  There is no similar substitute for the SCS regarding choice of tips, in my opinion.

Absolutely.  No tips when using the SCS.  Insert the SE846 (sans tips) into the sleeves, and then the sleeves into your ears.

Andrew, a closer look at my avatar will give you a better idea of what they're like.

Joined the cool kid's club Friday night when my crystal shells arrived. 2 week turn around. Sound is great. I've been a fan of the blue filter but now sampling the whites which previously I had not liked. However, the sleeves really ground the base and allow the mids and highs to separate. Next test is a 15 hour flight in a week.

Pics or it didn't happen! Just kidding...kinda. Welcome and congrats! What Crystal color did you purchase and do you have any pictures of them? You can also try modding the blue and/or black nozzle inserts/filters (take a safety pin and remove the foam dampers), as some members have experienced an elevation of auditory satisfaction with the mod.

Have fun during your flight!

You will love the isolation on the plane. Antisocial but who cares?

Nothing too exciting . . .  besides the sound.

I see Abbey Road behind your iems.  The 24bit sounds fantastic with my Comply Pro tips.  I'm hoping it will sound even better with the Sensaphonics.

Once you receive, I'd be interested in your impressions with the X5. The detail should be quite impressive. I tried the X5 for a month. Really liked the sound but the unit crashed. A lot! I think it was a tag issue and might pull the trigger again or wait for the X7 release.

post #192 of 412

I use my Pono, am selling the X5.  If you want a good deal on it, pm me as I haven't listed it yet.  Leather case, two 64 cards, box, etc.  I tried my 846s with it (single-ended, of course) and it sounded great.  But the Pono sounds better single-ended and considerably better balanced.  

 

If the one you had was crashing, most likely you had a problem with tagging.  A good tagging editor can fix that problem.  I can't recall mine ever crashing.  Also, it's very easy to reinstall the firmware, which should remove any other issues.  I found the X5 a very nice unit, and I'd still be using it if my son hadn't given me the Pono for Xmas.  It's been sitting in its box since then.

Don't wait on me. So far the simplicity of my stack keeps me happy but I'm always looking to raise the bar. I'm going to demo the AKs this month at Axpona. I've also been hearing good things about the Pono.

Looks like a Headphone Lounge Silver Litz and crystal blue or purple sleeves - exactly my set-up

 

These things are a perfect for sweaty gym sessions - helps to protect the 846s if you're not using a case carrying them around in a gym bag as well

post #195 of 412

Yep. I've not got the courage to wear them in the gym yet. However I have seen another pair floating around and even seen a guy wearing TH900s.
